Meaning Category of The pure mathematics of points and lines and curves and surfaces. circumscribe To draw a geometric figure around another figure so that the two are in contact but do not intersect congruent coinciding when superimposed conic section, conic (geometry) a curve generated by the intersection of a plane and a circular cone construct Draw with suitable instruments and under specified conditions diagonal (geometry) a straight line connecting any two vertices of a polygon that are not adjacent duality (geometry) the interchangeability of the roles of points and planes in the theorems of projective geometry eccentricity (geometry) a ratio describing the shape of a conic section inclination, angle of inclination (geometry) the angle formed by the x-axis and a given line (measured counterclockwise from the positive half of the x-axis) incongruent not congruent inscribe Draw within a figure so as to touch in as many places as possible lemniscate Any of several plane algebraic curves in the shape of a figure eight normal forming a right angle pencil A figure formed by a set of straight lines or light rays meeting at a point right Having the axis perpendicular to the base section, plane section (geometry) the area created by a plane cutting through a solid square, foursquare (geometry) a plane rectangle with four equal sides and four right angles superposition (geometry) the placement of one object ideally in the position of another one in order to show that the two coincide translate change the position of (figures or bodies) in space without rotation truncate Replace a corner by a plane mathematics, math, maths A science (or group of related sciences) dealing with the logic / logic of quantity and shape and arrangement affine geometry The geometry of affine transformations analytic geometry, analytical geometry, coordinate geometry The use of algebra to study geometric properties elementary geometry, parabolic geometry, Euclidean geometry (mathematics) geometry based on Euclid's axioms fractal geometry (mathematics) the geometry of fractals non-Euclidean geometry (mathematics) geometry based on axioms different from Euclid's plane geometry The geometry of 2-dimensional figures projective geometry, descriptive geometry The geometry of properties that remain invariant under projection solid geometry The geometry of 3-dimensional space spherical geometry (mathematics) the geometry of figures on the surface of a sphere pure mathematics The branches of mathematics that study and develop the principles of mathematics for their own sake rather than for their immediate usefulness geometría geometria, geometría geometric, geometrical of or relating to or determined by geometry geometrical characterized by simple geometric forms in design and decoration geometrician a mathematician specializing in geometry
